Operational safety is primarily determined by engineering and construction of the vehicle. The reliable safety design afforded the EK-Series is in no small part due to the engineering and considerable experience of custom building very narrow aisle forklift vehicles. The operator feels safe and secure in an enclosed cab yet has the freedom to work unhindered in an ergonomically intuitive designed work space. Studies show that optimum performance is linked to an environment that makes an operator feel safe and secure.
A smooth travel performance coupled with the torsion resistant mast give the operator the feeling of a safe and secure environment. Standing behind the experience, our unparalleled patented SGO design and construction principles, ensuring the highest degree of vehicle stability.
As a specific engineering result, the vehicle’s center of gravity is low to the ground enhancing the inherent stability. The EK-Series generously exceeds the DIN EN ISO 3691 a regulation for the maximum allowable degree of vehicle vertical tilt. This provides an added measure of safety even in critical situations.
Exceptional visibility afforded the operator, provides an unhindered view of the load and working aisle, to ensure safe handling.
Highly precise steering and responsive controls along with a compact small vehicle foot print, make maneuvering outside of the narrow working aisle exceptionally easy. The overview of the vehicle contour and its tight turning radius reduce the risk of accidents and damages, further limiting operational costs while increasing safety.
In harsh environments or difficult applications additional optional safeties may be incorporated into the vehicle system. Find out more ...
